University Non-discrimination Statement and Usage

Summary of Requirements

Federal law requires that the University’s non-discrimination statement (“notice”) be included in communications as follows:

“The notice must be widely distributed to all applicants for admission and employment, students and parents or guardians of elementary and secondary school students, employees, sources of referral of applicants for admission and employment, and all unions or professional organizations holding collective bargaining or professional agreements with the recipient. The notice should be prominently posted on the recipient’s website, at various locations on campus, and in electronic and printed publications for general distribution. In addition, the notice must be included in any bulletins, announcements, publications, catalogs, application forms, or recruitment materials.”
